Ginnie Hart: When the Dutch do subsidized art, Elaine, you ask no questions...and tell no lies! smile

I would love to however, I think the alligator is about to chase me so if you want to excuse me, I start running grin.....
Don't you just love subsidized art smilerolling my eyes here. Love your processing.
Ginnie Hart: Ask no questions and I'll tell no lies. HA! Someone is laughing all the way to the bank, I think?
That.... is very .... odd... What a strange find, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Leave it to the Dutch and their subsidized art, Elizabeth! smile
Hou, la vilaine bête !
Ginnie Hart: I know, Martine. Kinda gross, even in art!
A strange encounter, but I would enjoy it Ginnie...I quite like your treatment here!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I wouldn't want to meet up with this fella at night, even if it WAS on a pedestal! Can you imagine a blind person trying to figure out what it was by feeling it?!

This is very clever Ginnie, a true work of art but slightly unsettling too
Ginnie Hart: Leave it to the Dutch, Chris! (And I do!)

Oh, it looks a bit creepy .... I didn't know this phrase.
Ginnie Hart: Creepy is the perfect word for this, Philine. UGH!

From the thumb-nail, I though it was a hand with carbuncles, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Which would be equally as gross, I think, Lisl??!!
It is rather ugly Ginnie, but quite well made. Can you also let Astrid know that I liked her fishy picture. I was amazed at how much fish was hanging there.
Ginnie Hart: Not my kind of art, Chad, but very cleverly done, indeed. And, yes, I will make sure Astrid gets your message!

Étrange !
JP
Ginnie Hart: Indeed!
sacré monstre! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Yes, JP, I'm sure, for many. smile
I take it that this gator likes breasts. Weird is all I can say.
Ginnie Hart: Weird, indeed. It does make you wonder what the artist was thinking!

A barnacle infested crocodile, hung out to dry. Enough bicycles at the back there to let the Trim one have a happy day, was this on a Friday smile
Ginnie Hart: This was on a Saturday, Louis, when we went to visit Ayush. It was a great time to see his city here in Dutchland...as well as all the Dutch subsidized art!
what is on it's back?
Ginnie Hart: All I can guess is barnacles, Joshi. Very weird, if you ask me.

Hopefully, I'll never have to follow your advice smile I'd be up those steps and onto one of those bikes tout de suite. smile
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Alan. Let's go!
I've got to admit it, not your picture, looks somewhat repulsive.
Ginnie Hart: It totally grosses me out, Brian, so you're in good company. smile

Mmm. I wouldn't like to come across this on a dark night smile
Ginnie Hart: Me neither, Anne!!!
It seems to have a nasty skin condition Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: And I don't want to find out what it is, Bill!!!!
I am afraid ! LOL !
Ginnie Hart: I know!!!!!!! smile
i have not been around this part recently and am unaware if it is still installed, Ginnie. very nice treatment. this alligator has a facial expression that says that it has just come out of a coffee shop!
Ginnie Hart: HA about the coffee shop, Ayush. Maybe this says more about the sculptor than the alligator?! smile

We are really looking forward to your visit with us this weekend!
What a curious construction!
Ginnie Hart: I'm actually surprised I never once thought about going up close enough to inspect it, Tom. I guess that tells you everything!
He seems to be covered in boils...

What a strange statue!!
Ginnie Hart: Boils. Barnacles. Who knows what they are! I don't think I want to know.... HA!
Yes, the Dutch are strange people.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I've almost become one of them, Michael, so be careful what you say. grin
There's always something for everyone!
Ginnie Hart: Truer words were never spoken, Robin. smile
this one has a skin condition Ginnie... good find....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Don't worry, Peter. I stayed my distance!
Nice photo Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Maybe more gross than nice, Roland? smile
